What Are All-On-4 Dental Implants?

All-on-4 dental implants are an implant-supported denture that uses four implants to support a full-arch replacement for missing teeth. A qualified dental professional places the implants in strategic locations in the mouth and jawbone and attaches custom-made dentures to them. The denture implants look and function like natural teeth, allowing patients to easily eat, speak, and smile.

The All-on-4 implant system relies on the patient’s existing bone structure, with the placement of the implants allowing for optimal support for the prosthetic teeth. Dentists often recommend this treatment for patients with limited jawbone density, allowing them to receive implant-supported teeth with no additional bone grafting procedures. 

Benefits of All-On-4 Dental Implants

Undergoing dental implant surgery with All-on-4 can provide patients with the following benefits:

  • Can support a full arch of replacement teeth with just four implants, which is less invasive than traditional implant placement.
  • Replace an entire arch of teeth in just one day, allowing individuals to leave the dental office with a new smile the same day.
  • They look, feel, and function like natural teeth, allowing patients to eat, speak, and smile proudly.
  • Help preserve the jawbone, preventing bone loss and maintaining a more youthful appearance.

The All-On-4 Dental Implant Procedure

When it comes to placing all-on-4 dental implants, patients can expect the following steps:

  1. Initial Consultation: The process begins with a comprehensive consultation, where our dentist evaluates your oral health, discusses dental implant treatment options, and outlines the expected outcomes.
  2. Treatment Planning: A personalized treatment plan is developed based on the evaluation. This includes determining the optimal placement of the four implants and designing the prosthetic teeth.
  3. Dental Implant Placement: During the surgical procedure, four implants are strategically placed in the jawbone. The posterior implants are typically tilted at specific angles to maximize bone engagement.
  4. Temporary Prosthesis: A temporary set of prosthetic teeth is usually attached to the implants immediately after surgery, allowing patients to leave the dental office with a functional set of teeth while the permanent prosthesis is fabricated.
  5. Healing and Integration: Over the next few months, the dental implants undergo a process called osseointegration, where they fuse with the surrounding bone. This integration provides a stable foundation for the final prosthetic teeth.
  6. Final Prosthesis: Once the dental implants are fully integrated, a custom-designed, permanent set of prosthetic teeth is attached. These teeth are carefully crafted to resemble natural teeth in shape, size, and color.

Depending on your treatment plan, your procedure may look different. For those with insufficient jawbone, you may need an extra procedure for bone grafting, tooth extraction, or a sinus lift.

Who Needs All-On-4 Dental Implants?

All-on-4 dental implants may be an excellent option for those who have lost most or all of their teeth. To qualify for this implant treatment, patients should:

  • Be in good oral health, free of periodontal disease, and maintain excellent dental hygiene at home
  • Have sufficient bone density or be willing to undergo a bone grafting procedure if necessary
  • Be smoking and tobacco-free, or be willing to quit
  • Be in good overall health 

All-on-4 Dental Implant Costs

On average, the cost of an All-on-4 dental implant procedure can range from $20,000 to $50,000 per arch. However, this cost can be lower than traditional implant placement, as fewer implants are required. The cost of the All-on-4 dental implant treatment varies depending on several factors, including the location of the dental practice, the experience of the dentist, the number of implants required, treatment time, and the materials used.

Discuss the cost of the procedure with our dentist during the initial consultation. They can provide you with an estimate and discuss any financing options that may be available.
